At CLAVIS we have volunteers practicing Danish with the students outside classes in our "Taldansk Café". Furthermore Aarhus Municipality visits CLAVIS helping out our students understanding NemID and other digital communication platforms.


The Danish Education is free of charge, but a deposit has to be paid at the amount of 2.000 DKK. The full deposit will be reimbursed when completing the modules with a test within a certain timeframe or taking the final exam. Read more about rules for reimbursement of deposit.
